The Prince of Wales will fly to Singapore for the Earthshot Prize Awards on November 7

Prince George faces a huge exam next week, which explains why Princess Kate will not accompany Prince William for the Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore.

The Princess of Wales will stay in the UK to support her eldest child as he prepares to attend Eton College, just like his father and uncle, Prince Harry.

King Charles's eldest grandchild will have a crucial few upcoming months.

At the age of 10, he has to take entrance examinations that will determine the senior school he will attend when he turns 13.

​George will complete two of the three steps of this process during November.

The future King will take an ISEB multiple-choice exam, which will cover verbal and nonverbal reasoning, mathematics and English.

The two-and-a-half-hour exam is often taken in October or November, with age-appropriate scoring.

In addition, Eton will ask the student's current head teacher to provide a report that focuses on their character, hobbies, and academic skills.

George will take another test in early April or late May next year, seeing as he was born in July.

This exam will consist of an online predictive assessment of academic aptitude and performance, as well as an in-person interview at Eton.

By July 2024, the Palace will be aware of Prince George's results.

Students who pass will be given a conditional offer and will need to retake the Common Entrance Exam in year eight.

In June 1995, Prince William was admitted to Eton College after taking the Common Entrance Exam.

His brother, Prince Harry, was admitted in the same month in 1998.

Prince George will likely choose a boarding house in year seven, the year before the Common Entrance Exam, assuming he receives a conditional offer after his year six exams.

Royal fans won't know the specific details of how George did, however, as Eton policy prohibits anyone from publicising individual exam results.
